Mars to Stay remind me of Post-Industrial Northern townscapes or a dilapidated Black Country. Echoes of Joy Division amid a haunted shoe-gaze. These recordings are super DIY, recorded in an attic on a broken 4-track cassette, filled with snare-buzz and rough edges which heightens the pathos to beautiful levels.

“Named after the 1-way Mars colony plan, Mars to Stay make beautiful, melancholic and very stripped down music. There’s a definite hint of Durutti Column in there, also some Bark Psychosis and maybe Low. This Could be the soundtrack to a homesick colonist or an alienated, cloudy day at home. Either way, it’s pretty darn good.” Was Ist Das?
